Category Management

Director of Seller Acquisition (Philippines - Remote)

Preferable Location: Philippines   |   Full Time

Director of Seller Acquisition

Hip eCommerce is searching for an innovative and entrepreneurial leader energized by the challenge of driving the strategy and execution of seller acquisition for our online marketplaces.

Within the $200 Billion worldwide market of collectibles, there are many unique categories. Hip eCommerce believes that by creating specific marketplaces, built from the ground up to understand how collectors browse, search and collect each type of collectible, we can deliver an exceptional customer experience for both buyers and sellers.

The right leader will spearhead the strategy and execution of seller acquisition within our Category Management team, while working with key cross-functional partners in Customer Engagement, Marketing and Technology. Having recently launched revolutionary features such as creating entire listings based solely on images through our Comic Book Image Recognition feature, you’ll leverage the unique features and power of our platforms to attract new sellers for our marketplaces. You’ll also be tasked with building out a small team of Seller Acquisition and Business Development Managers whom you’ll train, monitor, and help grow into rock stars.

You will be the key stakeholder of the number of sellers across our marketplaces, and should be able to define overarching goals and strategy, articulate clear performance goals, execute plans, and monitor and manage key business metrics to achieve high growth results. You will need to be a skilled negotiator and relationship builder, helping a diverse set of sellers scale with us while improving product economics.

This is a full-time, remote-based position in the Philippines, working approximately 8am to 5pm Eastern Time Mon-Fri.
